In Catalonia a great deal of emphasis is placed on the Summer Solstice – the shortest night of the year. It is a public holiday renowned for the electric atmosphere in the air and the crazy parties that take place. If you are in Barcelona during this period there is no way that you will miss the date – fires in the streets and the constant crack of fireworks will make sure of that! The celebrations take place on  23 June  each year but the actual feast day is on the  24 June .

WHEN?: the eve of June 24th
